    Baseball's Top 100 Prospects of 2011
    By Frankie Piliere
    National MLB Analyst | Follow on Twitter: @frankiepiliere



    Spring training and the 2011 regular season are just around the corner, which means it's time to take stock of the top potential future stars in the minor leagues.

    Below are the Top 100 prospects in baseball right now, based upon my years of experience in the industry as a scout and talent evaluator.

    In order to be eligible for the list, the player must be part of a major league organization and still considered a rookie (fewer than 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the major leagues and fewer than 45 days on an active roster, excluding September call-ups).


    1
    MIKE TROUT (ANGELS)
    Finished 2010: Rancho Cucamonga
    Level: High-A (California League)
    B: R | HT: 6-1 | WT: 217
    POS AGE AVG SB XBH
    OF 19 .341 56 47Before 2010 began, Trout was highly touted, make no mistake. But going into 2011 his stock as a prospect has gone into the stratosphere. Oozing with tools and showing off the ability to be a plus hitter, Trout is the closest thing to the total package that you'll find.

    2
    JULIO TEHERAN (BRAVES)
    Finished 2010: Mississippi
    Level: Double-A (Southern League)
    B: R | HT: 6-2 | WT: 150
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 20 9-8 2.59 159 Teheran has been known as a tremendous talent for a couple years now, but with success under his belt at the upper levels in 2010, he can now be considered the best pitching prospect in the game. The Braves will try to take it slow, but Teheran's talent may continue to force their hand.

    3
    ERIC HOSMER (ROYALS)
    Finished 2010: Northwest Arkansas
    Level: Double-A (Texas League)
    B: L | HT: 6-4 | WT: 215
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    1B 21 .338 20 86After a tough 2009 season, some overlooked Hosmer heading into 2010. But after putting on a hitting clinic this past season, Hosmer is clearly back on track. I made the comparison back in July at the Futures Game, and I'll make it again: Hosmer is very similar to Joe Mauer at the plate with more thump in his bat.

    4
    JESUS MONTERO (YANKEES)
    Finished 2010: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre
    Level: Triple-A (International League)
    B: R | HT: 6-4 | WT: 225
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    C 21 .289 21 75 He still has critics who like to point to his defense but there is just about no one who will criticize Montero's bat. Will he be a good defensive catcher? No, but he has shown enough improvement to be an adequate defender. That combined with a potentially special bat make for an impressive total package.


    5
    JEREMY HELLICKSON (RAYS)
    Finished 2010: Tampa Bay
    Level: Major Leagues
    B: R | HT: 6-1 | WT: 185
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 23 16-3 2.89 156No young pitcher in baseball commands the ball like Hellickson. Let's not undersell his raw stuff either. With a fastball sitting 90-94 mph and an advanced feel for his secondary pitches, including a plus changeup, Hellickson is a complete pitcher aside from his lack of size.

    6
    DOMONIC BROWN (PHILLIES)
    Finished 2010: Philadelphia
    Level: Major Leagues
    B: L | HT: 6-5 | WT: 200
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    OF 23 .309 22 81 We got a good glimpse of Brown's tools at the big-league level in 2010, and it appears he'll have a good shot at a full-time job in 2011. There may be some growing pains for Brown, but he's worth the wait.

    7
    BRYCE HARPER (NATIONALS)
    Finished 2010: Scottsdale Scorpions
    Level: Arizona Fall League
    B: L | HT: 6-3 | WT: 205
    POS AGE AVG XBH OPS
    OF 18 .343 6 1.039Harper got off to a slow start at instructs in the fall, but quickly shook off the rust and put on an impressive hitting display in the Arizona Fall League. Any performance from a teenager in the AFL is something pretty special, and I expect Harper will continue to wow us in 2011.

    8
    AROLDIS CHAPMAN (REDS)
    Finished 2010: Cincinnati
    Level: Major Leagues
    B: L | HT: 6-4 | WT: 185
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    LHP 22 11-8 3.39 144 We learned a couple things about Aroldis Chapman in 2010, and one is that he throws perhaps as hard as any pitcher ever has. The other is that he is not a finished product. He has work to do on his command. Whether he starts or relieves long-term remains to be seen.

    9
    DUSTIN ACKLEY (MARINERS)
    Finished 2010: Tacoma
    Level: Triple-A (Pacific Coast League)
    B: L | HT: 6-1 | WT: 185
    POS AGE AVG XBH OBP
    2B 22 .267 48 .368Ackley got off to a terribly rough start in Double-A in 2010, but after a big performance in the Arizona Fall League, most of the doubts about him have evaporated. He's as good a pure bat as there is in the minor leagues.

    10
    ZACH BRITTON (ORIOLES)
    Finished 2010: Norfolk
    Level: Triple-A (International League)
    B: L | HT: 6-3 | WT: 195
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    LHP 23 10-7 2.70 124 Showing off a heavy mid-90s fastball and command of his secondary pitches, Britton was one of the pitchers creating the most buzz in the scout section at the Futures Game in Anaheim. The good news for the Orioles is that he's not far off from contributing at the big-league level.

    11
    JONATHAN SINGLETON (PHILLIES)
    Finished 2010: Lakewood
    Level: Single-A (South Atlantic League)
    B: L | HT: 6-2 | WT: 215
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    1B/OF 19 .290 14 77 Even as a big believer in Singleton's sleeper status following a strong GCL season in 2009, I could not have anticipated his breakout 2010 campaign. Showing off a plus hit tool and plus game-ready power from the left side, he is already drawing comparisons to Ryan Howard.

    12
    MICHAEL PINEDA (MARINERS)
    Finished 2010: Tacoma
    Level: Triple-A (Pacific Coast League)
    B: R | HT: 6-5 | WT: 180
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 22 11-4 3.36 154 Armed with the imposing size, presence and big raw stuff, Pineda has everything you look for in a top-of-the-rotation starter. The good news is he's on the cusp of contributing full-time at the big-league level and could become a dynamic complement to Felix Hernandez.

    13
    MANNY BANUELOS (YANKEES)
    Finished 2010: Trenton
    Level: Double-A (Eastern League)
    B: L | HT: 5-10 | WT: 155
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    LHP 19 0-4 2.51 85 Some like to pretend Banuelos came from nowhere in 2010. Well, he didn't. He picked up a couple ticks on his fastball and lives at 93-95 now, but even before the spike he was armed with two good secondary offerings and plus command.


    14
    DESMOND JENNINGS (RAYS)
    Finished 2010: Tampa Bay
    Level: Major Leagues
    B: R | HT: 6-2 | WT: 200
    POS AGE AVG SB XBH
    OF 24 .274 39 36 Jennings has slipped on this list following a bumpy 2010 season. The skills, however, have not gone away. Jennings still has the tools to be a .300 hitter and 40-steal threat.

    15
    MIKE MONTGOMERY (ROYALS)
    Finished 2010: Northwest Arkansas
    Level: Double-A (Texas League)
    B: L | HT: 6-5 | WT: 180
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    LHP 21 7-5 2.61 88 In a system loaded with left-handed pitching, Montgomery still leads the pack for the Royals. His height, projectability, changeup and 92-96 mph fastball make for a fascinating prospect. His curveball still needs work, however.

    16
    KYLE DRABEK (BLUE JAYS)
    Finished 2010: Toronto
    Level: Major Leagues
    B: R | HT: 6-1 | WT: 190
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 23 14-12 3.12 144We got a good glimpse of Kyle Drabek's talents at the big-league level in 2010, and the good news for Jays fans is that he appears just about ready to stick there. The stuff is still fantastic and his intangibles are improving.

    17
    MARTIN PEREZ (RANGERS)
    Finished 2010: Frisco
    Level: Double-A (Texas League)
    B: L | HT: 6-0 | WT: 178
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    LHP 19 5-8 5.96 101 Martin Perez had a bad year in 2010, but a bad year doesn't make him a bad prospect. He still has some of the best stuff of any left-hander in the minors and he's only 19. I see 2010 as a bump in the road and nothing more. Perez is still an elite prospect.

    18
    MIKE MOUSTAKAS (ROYALS)
    Finished 2010: Omaha
    Level: Triple-A (Pacific Coast League)
    B: L | HT: 5-11 | WT: 230
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    3B 22 .322 36 124 Few players in minor-league baseball or at any level of professional baseball can boast the power that Moustakas possesses. He can be spectacular in batting practice, and that power showed up in a big way in game action in 2010.

    19
    SHELBY MILLER (CARDINALS)
    Finished 2010: Quad Cities
    Level: Single-A (Midwest League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 195
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 20 7-5 3.62 140 Miller drew early comparisons to a number of notable power pitchers in 2010, including Curt Schilling. While it's not fair to rush to those conclusions just yet, Miller appears to be one of the prep pitchers from the 2009 draft class best equipped to move up the ladder in a hurry.

    20
    BRANDON BELT (GIANTS)
    Finished 2010: Fresno
    Level: Triple-A (Pacific Coast League)
    B: L | HT: 6-5 | WT: 195
    POS AGE AVG RBI OPS
    1B 22 .352 112 1.075 Some players come with a reputation straight out of the draft. Belt had to earn his in the minors, and he's now one of baseball's best hitting prospects. He appears more than ready to step in and contribute in a big way at the next level.

    21
    FREDDIE FREEMAN (BRAVES)
    Finished 2010: Atlanta
    Level: Major Leagues
    B: L | HT: 6-5 | WT: 225
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    1B 21 .311 19 88Freeman answered some questions in 2010 and continues to establish himself as the long-term answer for the Braves at first base. A taste of the show should help him make the transition seamlessly in 2011.

    22
    WIL MYERS (ROYALS)
    Finished 2010: Wilmington
    Level: High-A (Carolina League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 190
    POS AGE AVG RBI OPS
    C 20 .315 83 .934 Not a lot of young catchers are as productive as Myers has already been at his age. There are times that Myers can look sloppy at the plate, but he then turns around and wows you with his prolific game-ready power and plus bat speed.

    23
    JARROD PARKER (D'BACKS)
    Finished 2010: Did Not Pitch (Injury)
    Level: N/A
    B: R | HT: 6-1 | WT: 180
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 22 5-6 3.14 95 Although we didn't see Parker in 2010, he still remains one baseball's best pitching prospects. With the high rate of success in elbow surgeries, it's not unrealistic to expect Parker, and his plus stuff, to return to form in no time.

    24
    JAMESON TAILLON (PIRATES)
    Finished 2010: Did Not Pitch
    Level: N/A
    B: R | HT: 6-6 | WT: 225
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 19 N/A N/A N/A Taillon is as good a prep pitcher as we've seen in recent years, and boy do the Pirates need him to be as good as advertised. Armed with a fastball that lives in the mid-90s and a projectable frame, Taillon has the skills to instantly be a productive and elite prospect.

    25
    MATT MOORE (RAYS)
    Finished 2010: Charlotte
    Level: High-A (Florida State League)
    B: L | HT: 6-2 | WT: 205
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    LHP 21 6-11 3.36 208 The strikeout rates are downright staggering and his raw stuff isn't far behind. Southpaws with plus fastballs and swing-and-miss secondary pitches are few and far between. Expect Tampa Bay to take it slow with Moore, though.

    26
    JACOB TURNER (TIGERS)
    Finished 2010: Lakeland
    Level: High-A (Florida State League)
    B: R | HT: 6-5 | WT: 210
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 19 6-5 3.28 102Turner, like Shelby Miller, proved to be immediately ready for pro ball in 2010. Not only was he ready, but Turner thrived in High-A ball in his professional debut. He has the size and the fastball to miss a lot of bats. Turner could come along in a hurry.

    27
    CHRIS SALE (WHITE SOX)
    Finished 2010: Chicago
    Level: Major Leagues
    B: L | HT: 6-5 | WT: 170
    POS AGE SV ERA SO
    LHP 21 4 2.14 51 Sale does have some question marks about his delivery and his long-term durability, but the stuff and the success he immediately had at the big-league level are things you can not ignore. He has electric stuff from the left side, and the big question now is whether he'll start or relieve long-term.

    28
    MIKE MINOR (BRAVES)
    Finished 2010: Atlanta
    Level: Major Leagues
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 210
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    LHP 23 9-9 4.08 189 Some thought Minor was an overdraft in 2009, but so far the Braves are looking correct in their evaluation. Minor does not profile as a top-of-the-rotation starter, but he's polished and should contribute at the big-league level as a middle-of-the-rotation arm.

    29
    CASEY KELLY (PADRES)
    Finished 2010: Portland
    Level: Double-A (Eastern League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 195
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 21 3-5 5.31 81 The Red Sox had long been reluctant to part with Kelly before finally dealing him to San Diego, and they had good reason for their reluctance. Kelly hit some speed bumps in 2010, but they were mainly due to an adjustment to newfound velocity. People overestimate how polished and big league-ready he is, but he still has front-of-the-rotation upside.

    30
    TYLER MATZEK (ROCKIES)
    Finished 2010: Asheville
    Level: Single-A (South Atlantic League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 210
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    LHP 20 5-1 2.92 88 The velocity took some time to come along in 2010, but before the season was out Matzek was dominating the way the Rockies expected him to when they drafted him. He has plus stuff from the left side and has pitchability well beyond his years.

    31
    MANNY MACHADO (ORIOLES)
    Finished 2010: Aberdeen
    Level: Low-A (New York-Penn League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 185
    POS AGE AVG RBI OPS
    SS 18 .306 5 .855 The comparisons to Alex Rodriguez are unfair, but the raw tools are still spectacular for Machado. We'll have to see as he matures if he can remain at shortstop, but his quick hands and extension make for a potentially special bat.

    32
    JEAN SEGURA (ANGELS)
    Finished 2010: Cedar Rapids
    Level: Single-A (Midwest League)
    B: R | HT: 5-11 | WT: 155
    POS AGE AVG SB XBH
    2B 20 .313 50 46 It's easy to get overlooked when you're Mike Trout's teammate, but it's hard to miss Segura's combination of speed and prowess at the plate. Segura has the power to drive the ball to the gaps and cause problems on the basepaths. Still just 20, he has the bat to move up quickly.

    33
    JURICKSON PROFAR (RANGERS)
    Finished 2010: Spokane
    Level: Low-A (Northwest League)
    B: L | HT: 5-11 | WT: 165
    POS AGE AVG RBI SB
    SS 17 .250 23 8 No player this young impressed me as much in 2010 as Profar did. Able to more than hold his own at the plate with older players in instructs, Profar is one of those rare toolsy young players that is already advanced in the bat department.

    34
    GARY SANCHEZ (YANKEES)
    Finished 2010: Staten Island
    Level: Low-A (New York-Penn League)
    B: R | HT: 6-2 | WT: 195
    POS AGE AVG XBH OPS
    C 18 .329 21 .936 Most organizations would sign up for having Sanchez as their top prospect, but he doesn't even get the title of top catching prospect in his organization. That may soon change, however, as Sanchez's bat rivals Montero's at the same age and he looks like he'll be a better defender.


    35
    KYLE GIBSON (TWINS)
    Finished 2010: Rochester
    Level: Triple-A (International League)
    B: R | HT: 6-6 | WT: 210
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 23 11-6 2.96 126His smooth mechanics, good command and wiry frame have taken him up the ladder rapidly, but let's not forget how good Gibson's low-90s fastball and breaking ball can be. He's ready to help the Twins in 2011.

    36
    JOSE IGLESIAS (RED SOX)
    Finished 2010: Portland
    Level: Double-A (Eastern League)
    B: L | HT: 5-11 | WT: 175
    POS AGE AVG RBI OPS
    SS 21 .295 20 .719 We've heard all about the glove and Iglesias' stunning skills at shortstop, but his bat is slowly catching up. He'll always be known for his defense, make no mistake, but he looks like he'll be a more than representative big-league hitter as well.

    37
    JARRED COSART (PHILLIES)
    Finished 2010: Lakewood
    Level: Low-A (South Atlantic League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 180
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 20 7-3 3.79 77 His health will be something to keep an eye on, but on talent alone Cosart is already an elite pitching prospect after what was his first taste of full-season baseball. He pitches in the mid-90s, can miss bats and has the framework for strong secondary offerings.

    38
    JORDAN LYLES (ASTROS)
    Finished 2010: Round Rock
    Level: Double-A (Eastern League)
    B: R | HT: 6-4 | WT: 185
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 20 7-12 3.57 137 Unlike many of the players on this list, Lyles is not a pitcher who relies solely on raw stuff. He has, essentially, average stuff -- perhaps a tick better than average. But his command and advanced feel for pitching make him a strong bet to be a good No. 3 starter at the big-league level.

    39
    AARON HICKS (TWINS)
    Finished 2010: Beloit
    Level: Single-A (Midwest League)
    B: S | HT: 6-2 | WT: 185
    POS AGE AVG SB OPS
    OF 21 .279 21 .829 We've known about Hicks' electric all-around tools since his amateur days, and they are beginning to show up in a big way in the pros. The Twins will be patient and take it slow with him, but his five-tool ability may force their hand if he continues to improve at this rate.

    40
    LONNIE CHISENHALL (INDIANS)
    Finished 2010: Akron
    Level: Double-A (Eastern League)
    B: L | HT: 6-1 | WT: 200
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    3B 22 .278 17 84 The Indians could use an offensive infusion, and it looks like Chisenhall isn't far off from giving them that. He should have plus power from the left side and appears to be a consistent run producer in the making.

    41
    ANTHONY RANAUDO
    (RED SOX)
    Finished 2010: Louisiana State
    Level: NCAA
    B: R | HT: 6-7 | WT: 225
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 21 5-3 7.32 54After I got a final glimpse of Ranaudo on the Cape just before he signed, I was pretty convinced he was worth the money he was commanding from Boston. The Sox did end up forking the cash over, and I expect it will pay off quickly. Ranaudo could rocket up the ladder with his plus stuff, size and feel for pitching.

    42
    MIGUEL SANO (TWINS)
    Finished 2010: GCL Twins
    Level: Rookie (Gulf Coast League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 195
    POS AGE AVG RBI OPS
    3B 17 .307 29 .870 Sano was one of the most sought-after international prospects in recent years when the Twins landed him, and thus far he hasn't disappointed. We know about the impressive tools, but even at 17 his bat already looks very polished. Expect him to make a big impact in full-season ball in 2011.

    43
    TONY SANCHEZ (PIRATES)
    Finished 2010: Bradenton
    Level: High-A (Florida State League)
    B: R | HT: 6-0 | WT: 213
    POS AGE AVG RBI OPS
    C 22 .314 35 .870 Some scratched their heads at just how high the Pirates took Sanchez in the 2009 Draft, but he made the Pirates look incredibly smart in 2010. Showing off a polished bat that isn't too far from being major league ready, Sanchez was strong at the plate and behind it in High-A.

    44
    DELLIN BETANCES (YANKEES)
    Finished 2010: Trenton
    Level: Double-A (Eastern League)
    B: R | HT: 6-8 | WT: 245
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 20 8-1 2.11 108 If not for his injury history, Betances would likely be toward the top 20 in this list. The owner of a 93-96 mph fastball, a plus curveball and a rapidly improving changeup, the towering right-hander has all the components you look for in a frontline starter.


    45
    BRETT LAWRIE
    (BLUE JAYS)
    Finished 2010: Huntsville
    Level: Double-A (Southern League)
    B: R | HT: 6-0 | WT: 213
    POS AGE AVG RBI SB
    2B 21 .285 63 30 Give the Jays credit for picking up this kind of talent in the deal for Shaun Marcum. Lawrie is a potential premium bat with plus raw power and bat speed. The Dan Uggla comparisons are not far off base.

    46
    ZACH WHEELER (GIANTS)
    Finished 2010: Augusta
    Level: Single-A (South Atlantic League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 180
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 20 3-3 3.99 70 Last year was not without growing pains for Wheeler, but the stuff that made him a first-round draft pick was evident throughout. Armed with a fastball that reaches 96 mph and a good breaking ball, Wheeler will require some development, but the raw skills are in place.

    47
    CHRIS ARCHER (RAYS)
    Finished 2010: Tennessee
    Level: Double-A (Southern League)
    B: R | HT: 6-3 | WT: 180
    POS AGE W-L ERA SO
    RHP 22 15-3 2.34 149 It was a breakout 2010 season for Archer as he received consistent national attention throughout the year. Yes, the numbers were sparkling, but it was the mid-90s fastball and swing-and-miss breaking ball that stood out to evaluators. If he can keep his command in check, he has the makings of a frontline starter.

    48
    HAK-JU LEE (RAYS)
    Finished 2010: Peoria
    Level: Double-A (Midwest League)

    POS AGE AVG SB XBH
    SS 20 .282 32 27Lee is a wild card in that he will need some time to develop as a hitter. Considering his flashy tools on the basepaths and in the field, he is the type of guy with which you remain patient.

    DEVIN MESORACO (REDS)
    Finished 2010: Louisville
    Level: Triple-A (International League)
    B: R | HT: 6-1 | WT: 220
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    C 22 .302 26 75 Last year was likely Mesoraco's best season as a pro. He showed off the variety of things he can do on a baseball field. He has the tools to stick behind the dish and provide plus big-league power. That combination obviously isn't easy to find.

    ANTHONY RIZZO (PADRES)
    Finished 2010: Portland
    Level: Double-A (Eastern League)
    B: L | HT: 6-3 | WT: 220
    POS AGE AVG HR RBI
    1B 21 .260 25 100 There's a good reason the Padres wanted Rizzo in the deal for Adrian Gonzalez. For one, he could fill the void Gonzalez left at first base. But they also feel it won't be long until he can fill that void, providing 30-homer potential.

    Man, I can not wait to see some of these blue chip yankee prospects in action this year. There is so much up side to these guys that it isn't even funny. BTW, it seems like Hector Noesi has been left out of a lot of peoples conversation. I'm not counting him out. Though he's had injuries, the kid still has some good pitches.

    Noesi ceiling is a 4th or 5th starter. He's not a big time prospect.

    What is up with the tags on some of these threads? IMO the mods need to keep this forum in check some of the yankee and met fans in this forum behave like 5 year olds.

    Maybe. He might be able to help the team this year with a few starts.

    IDK but the mods can tell who wrote each tag, so its risky making a insult on them, like the one about tucker...



    Anyways on topic, I am hoping Jesus Montero is up in the majors this year... I am not buying Russell Martin being our starting catcher, maybe try him to start the year but injuries and not playing as well as he used to, IDK... I think Montero could provide a spark...

    I wish Manny or Betances had more innings in the minors so that they would be ready this year, but because of that I doubt we see them unless september call ups...
